Does not knowing your heart rate while biking really grind your gears?

Founded in 2014, Everysight is a consumer augmented reality company spun out of Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems Ltd. The company’s founders gained experience at Elbit, where they worked on the company’s pilot helmet.
The glasses also have bluetooth speakers and a microphone which enable riders to listen to music or pick up phone calls while keeping both hands on the handle-bars. Voice commands can be utilized to control features such as maps, volume, and brightness.
A built-in HD camera with voice and data overlay enable riders to capture, save and share their cycling adventures. All the captured information, such as heart rate, route, and speed, are uploaded to the company’s accompanying app and can be shared through social media or synced to outside fitness apps.
The glasses weigh 100 grams, and the company touts the glasses’ battery as lasting up to 8 hours without having to recharge.
